We thoroughly loved our guides in each city who were able to open up the history, culture and “behind the scenes” side trips of each stop along the way. We were fascinated with the publisher who was able to help us understand the fascinating history of Vietnam and its neighbors and occupiers. The chef in Hue was an exceptional host and prepared a wonderful meal and opened our eyes to the many foods of your country. We loved getting to spend the evening in a true Vietnam home. The beautiful hotels and yacht were first class with impeccable service. The welcoming that we were given at each stop along the way set Vietnam far and away. As the most “gracious” country we have ever visited!!!
